Like an unfolding song, wildflowers reveal there’s something natural happening in our organic vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. These vineyards have a harmony, energy and uniqueness about them we believe you can taste in our wines. 2018 was a really good year for Pinot Noir, with a warm dry summer ensuring good colour. Not so hot it burnt off all the lovely aromatics.
The Pinot Noir was picked pretty ripe and allowed to soak on skin for around five days before fermentation kicked off naturally.
Black cherry, violet and subtle herb characters on the nose, with complex liquorice and earth flavours on the palate. The tannins are firm but melting and provide a supporting structure.
